This unit had everything we needed and the resort is in a great location - close enough to Kihei for convenience but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. The downsides were that there was a noise coming from the bathroom that was quite annoying and there was construction in the unit next door that was reallly loud one day when we were in the unit. The shrieking noise in the bathroom was mostl covered by closing both doors between the bathroom and bedroom but still an annoyance regardless as closing the room off also limited air flow. We were only provided one washcloth and no hand towels when we arrived. It took 48 hours to get those delivered, which was frustrating but not a deal breaker since we at least had full size bath towels. We would probably stay at sugar beach again but not sure I would do this unit due to the noise in the bathroom and delayed response of property management.
Our stay was everything we wanted and more.
The condo was beautiful and comfortable, but there was a MASSIVE construction project going on next door. We couldn’t hear each other speak in the condo, all day long, for 4 of our 6 days. The air conditioning unit let out a loud shrieking noise half the night. Property management told us tough luck on the construction and that they knew about the project but they’re not required to let the owners of the rented unit or us know in advance about it. Their advice was to see if the owners would let us cancel and to go try and rebook a different property. Put in a maintenance request for the AC and my cell phone number, property management said they called the house phone in the condo (which we weren’t in because of the unbearable noise) and the AC was never addressed. The unit itself is great but these two items had a big negative impact on our stay.
The unit was clean and as described with views so beautiful we had trouble deciding whether to go out or just sit on the lanai and relax while watching the whales jump. Our departure flight was delayed by almost half a day, and the owners allowed us to stay late so we actually got to use the last day instead of sitting at the airport waiting. This is our fourth time to Maui and our favorite trip so far, would stay here again without question and will direct our friends and family to this unit as well!
Excellent location for whale watching tours, the aquarium and farmers market. Watched whales from our lanai, walked the beach and used the beautiful pool. I would love to come back for an outrigger canoe experience located right next door. Location couldn’t have been more perfect.
The boardwalk in the wildlife refuge was amazing too. Great place for nature lovers 💕
The unit was wonderful. Had daily whale shows from the balcony. Good location away from the bustle of Kihei. Beautiful beach. Turned out though, that the pool was closed for four days vs the two that we were notified of.
Resealing of the deck usually done in September, but instead, January. Had counted on some down time poolside, but we did other things instead.

The condo was outstanding, very well equipped with everything you need and more. The views from the top floor were fabulous.Being here in the middle of January we got to see whales everyday. What a gem of a place, highly recommended. The host were quick to get back to us on any questions we had. Thanks for sharing your place, we will be back.
This condo was simply perfect. We have stayed in many VRBO's and I have to say this one is at the top our list. The attention to detail, decor, supplies, and cleanliness were superb. The condo is stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The location and view from the lanai can't be beat. So so beautiful. Mahalo for an amazing place to stay❤️

Beautiful penthouse condo facing the ocean! Very clean. Attentive management team.
Amazing view. Had everything we needed for a perfect stay on Maui. Bed was A+ comfortable.
Everyone was nice and thoughtful. The condo was very clean and organized. The only thing we noticed was that it appeared the there were unabled cars on the parking lot.
Unbeatable ocean views from this unit. Owners were also very responsive to ensure our stay was enjoyable.
Wonderful location. Well maintained property.
Property had a great view
This was a beautiful condo on a beautiful location of the property. Loved our stay! The AC in the bedroom was not as cool as the living/dining/kitchen area. We used the fan they had & set it up in hall to push air down hall to the bedroom. They have everything you can imagine for your stay!! It was unbelievable. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much!!
Beautiful property in a perfect location for us to visit the area. Would definitely stay again!
Property needs to have improvements done, such as replacing the cracked table on the lanai. I contacted the management company but they said there was nothing they could do. The place had random garbage/cleaning items laying around. There are too many decorations as it leaves little space for guests to use.
PH19 is well-organized and supplied with most basic needs and then some. Clean and comfortable. Enjoyed the view and convenient location.
Very nice condo. Was stocked with more than you can imagine.
The place was clean and perfect for our 3 night stay but nothing beats the view from the lanai and listening to the waves crash. Location was amazing and we'd come back in a heartbeat.
Sugar Beach Resort looks dated upon arrival. The condo was clean, well equipped and had a spectacular view off the balcony.
The resort seemed centrally located and everyone was friendly. Property management and staff were very responsive.
Thanks to James and Lori who took a personal interest that we were happy. We will be back!
Great location for exploring Maui. The condo's balcony overlooks the water, and you can hear the waves from the back bedroom when the screen is open. The condo is clean and cute, and well maintained.
What a relaxing and beautiful stay my husband and I had at the condo. The kitchen was stocked, and the view was breathtaking.
This was a super nice Condo: beach side, spectacular views, great pool, nice shops. Owners did a fantastic job of making sure we had everything we would need and more to get the most out of our stay. Definitely would stay here again.
Great location. Beautiful view. Clean property.
Hosts ensured condo was well stocked for full kitchen use. Both owners and management were very responsive to any questions we had - and even arranged for an alternative condo when we encountered a plumbing issue.
Do it! No need to overpack! This place has everything. 10/10 for location, beach access, and so quiet.
Amazing location, right on the sandy beach. I found it to be annoying that I downloaded an app before we left, as requested, filled out all the required documents, then had to do it again when I got to the condo. Other than that it was absolutely fantastic. The condo is beautiful, clean, and perfectly located.
Everything met our expectations! The room was decorated very cute and homey. Towels, chairs, cooler, etc. lots of things available for us to use and we didn’t need to pack. The grounds were very well maintained and our view from the room did not disappoint.
The ideal low-key, relaxing place to enjoy my fave beach. Beautifully appointed condo with everything we needed for a memorable and perfect Hawaiian retreat. Loved the property, location and ease of check in. Thank you thank you! We’ll be back—soon! 🌺🍹🌴🌊😎
We rented this condo for two weeks in Feb. 2022. Dealing with the owners was very easy & efficient but the management company was less professional & more scattered. The condo is beautifully decorated, well cared for & very quiet. The kitchen was supplied with all the utensils we needed to make meals. The linens on the bed were lovely & we appreciated the shampoo, conditioner & toilet paper in the bathroom. We loved the location of the condo on Sugar Beach. We walked the beach, swam in the ocean & watched whales breaching & the infamous Maui sunset from our lanai. There is a lovely bakery & an ABC store within walking distance. The grounds of the resort are immaculate as is the pool & hot tub. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked three weeks next Feb.
Condo had a great view and was beautifully decorated. Very comfortable bed with good sheets. Would stay here again!
Loved everything about this condo. It had everything we needed and more. Awesome location, incredible views, clean and comfortable inside. My only wish is that we could have stayed longer!
This property was amazing. Clean, organized, comfortable, and the view was stunning. Thank you!
This condo was perfect for our stay in Maui! Great location, great beach access and whale watching. Condo was stocked with everyday supplies, ready to use, that truly makes a vacation feel like a home. Thank you for everything!
we had a wonderful stay, the view is amazing!
Very quite beach and with the row club just down the street it was cool to watch them rowing every morning. It was close to everything. We had a great time.
- amazing ocean view
- slept with screen door open and could hear the waves from bedroom
- easy access to so many nearby beaches, restaurants and live music
So my wife and I got married during COVID and we had to reschedule several times due to different restrictions and regulations from the airlines and Hawaii.
What I would like to say is that through this process James and Lori were extremely understanding and very helpful as hosts.
In relation to the property it’s is a nice condo and suited everything my wife and I needed to accomplish on our honeymoon. It is located on a very Long Beach great for morning walks. “One downside is it can get a little windy in the afternoons” but, you’re in Hawaii next to the ocean. It can get windy anywhere on the island.
Location: The good thing of where the condos is located is that it is pretty centralized on the island and allows for relatively short drives to your restaurants or activities. On the flip side to that you have to drive everywhere and there isn’t really anything great in walking distance. But all in all most of our drives were under 30 minutes which went quickly with all the scenic views to look at.
What I would say is that, the condo is nice, clean, and well kept. The pool and hot tub access add a nice touch if you don’t want to get into the ocean or want to go for a night swim. The beach is clean, long, and safe- great for walking. Most importantly James and Lori as host are understanding, friendly, and accommodating.
I’m not sure what else you could ask for in staying somewhere. I would definitely stay here again with James and Lori.
We very much enjoyed our stay. Won't hesitate to return on our next trip. Thank You, John & Terri
AMAZING condo rental with a nearly perfect experience all around. It was a little stressful on receiving check-in communication from the rental company - a brief delay there but after that, it was golden. The condo is lovely, comfortable and exceptionally clean. The furniture truly is very nice, and the kitchen and bath well stocked and everything is labeled for easy finding. I appreciated the welcome gift as a thoughtful touch and had communication from Maui condo rental (who handled the condo) throughout our stay to ensure all was going well. Beach towels, chairs and boogies boards for use were a nice touch too. We absolutely loved the condo and location was great - Kihei is a fun little area and it’s a great location for easy access either north or south. We will be back!
The condo was perfect! The view was amazing and Sugar Beach is the best place ever.
We enjoyed every second of our stay. We hope to be back next year. Our hosts James and Lori were amazing to work with. The rental exceeded our expectations in every way.
Beautiful location. Perfect ocean view. The unit was stocked with everything that we needed. Owners were prompt with answering my questions.
This condo did not disappoint! The view from the balcony and living room was breathtaking. The owners literally thought of everything. You only need to bring your swimsuit! We loved the calm waves of the beach here and also really enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi. We would highly recommend this property to anyone!
Cathe and Jim P.
This condo is 100% PERFECT. Location on Sugar beach, amazing, ocean view, AMAZING, the condo complex, AMAZING. Everything you could want and need in a condo is there. Beach chairs, cooler, umbrella, boogie boards, even flashlight, all there! It was a great condo and so extremely pleased with everything. The property management company was a little cumbersome but hey it is Covid times so things are different.. Just know you will never get early check in.
I would stay in this condo again without hesitation.
Great stay -- the view from the balcony is amazing, bed is comfortable, they provide beach equipment, towels, extra fans and robes, and shower pressure was awesome. Would definitely stay here again
Great location, great views, great condos!!
The condo was beautifully decorated with an absolutely beautiful view. I don’t think I’ve ever stayed someplace as well stocked as this place. They had beach chairs, towels, an umbrella and even a cooler to use. The location was very convenient to go south into Kihei, across the island to Paia to start the Road to Hana and to the north to Lahaina. We definitely maximized our time with staying in the middle. Not a lot of close restaurants to walk to, but everything was within a couple minute drive. We had a wonderful time!
We went to Maui to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. This condo was a 10/10! We loved everything. Sitting on the lounge chairs by the beach and ending the day on the lanai was heaven! We did the Road to Hana, Haleakala, Iao National Park and more. The condo had everything! A small cooler to take to the beach, beach chairs, beach towels and even sunscreen! You have thought of everything. We would love to come back someday.
